PostgreSQL 9.5 has many new and cool features for database users, making
the venerable RDBMS suitable for even more workloads. Among them are:

* UPSERT for high-concurrency insert/update operations
* Row Level Security, integrated with SELinux, for ultimate
   data security
* CUBE and ROLLUP for sophisticated analytics
* FDW partitioning for data federation
* BRIN indexes for big data
* More JSON goodness

PostgreSQL Core Team member Josh Berkus will take you on a tour of the
new features, including demos of many of them, and field questions about
PostgreSQL in general.
